A film about time, place and transience from writer Paul Auster and director Wayne Wang. Auggie Wren (Harvey Keitel) runs a tobacconist on an intersection in Brooklyn, providing a haven from the hustle and flow for his coterie of peculiar customers. Every morning he takes a photograph from the same spot outside. Every day a network of strangers grows more familiar. Every night Tom Waits reminds us, ‘You’re innocent when ya dream’. A Jarmuschian treat for fans of Auster, Waits and photography.

From two portraits of children…

The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Orientalist Painting Collection includes two children’s portraits that are often featured in exhibitions on the second floor of the Pera Museum. These portraits both date back to the early 20th century, and were made four years apart. One depicts Prince Abdürrahim Efendi, son of Sultan Abdulhamid II, while the figure portrayed on the other is Nazlı, the daughter of Osman Hamdi Bey.
